    Obesity Statistics in the United States

    Kentucky's obesity rate is over 30%

    Maybe they should let those kids go hungry for a change

I'm sure they don't even call them chefs.

    With the new insurgence of interest in cooking, there are plenty of trained chefs out there looking for jobs. But school districts don't hire them. They hire some jamoke who cooks in her kitchen, throw a menu at her and set her loose.

    Healthy meatloaf...healthy fish tacos...healthy mac & cheese...healthy stews...healthy mashed potatoes and low-fat gravy...it's not rocket science.
    Maggie... spot on. I'd add... if they did something like that you wouldn't need $11 Billion of taxpayers money.

    It is more important than the food. It's how much you eat, how much kids move, not so much the type of food.

    I do think the new calorie limits are unreasonably low. Especially for older kids, and double-especially for active older kids that play sports.

    Better yet - we could save trillions by getting rid of the Obamas, which of course would rid us of a massive vomitous mass as well.

    While that's true, in regards to weight, surely you must agree that it's easier to move more and eat less if you're eating healthier food?

    I thought schools were supposed to offer choices to students? Or maybe things have changed in the last 20 years.

    Or maybe the parents actually do their jobs and teach their children some respect and decent eating habits instead of letting them eat cheeseburgers every day and wondering why the kids develop such an entitlement complex when it comes to the taste of the food they're given.

    It is more important than the food. It's how much you eat, how much kids move, not so much the type of food.
    If you think this idea would save money, I have a bridge in San Francisco to sell you.

    Why don't they just make all school food healthy, increase funding to school lunch programs so that this can be done, transfer subsidies from unhealthy garbage to healthy food.

    Seriously, I don't understand how you can't have a school lunch program and not make a profit on it while still have it affordable to both the schools and students. School lunch prices will increase, but vouchers should be available to families who demonstrate financial need.

    I think school lunches should be free anyways, but this would be a good compromise IMO.
